Podcast: Nolan and Jake talk about the future of the Ravens following brutal loss to Bears

Welcome to the latest episode of the Charm City Bird Watch Podcast! On tonight’s episode, Nolan McGraw and Jake McDonnell recap what was a brutal loss for the Baltimore Ravens; a 27-24 overtime defeat to the Chicago Bears.

Whether it was the turnovers, a lack of explosion/urgency on offense, or poor run defense, the Bears were the better team on Sunday. What went wrong? After such an inspiring performance on the road last week against the Raiders, why did the Ravens fall flat? The guys give their input.

There is plenty of blame to go around for the Ravens’ shaky 3-3 start, but who deserves most of the blame? Is it Joe Flacco? John Harbaugh and the coaching staff? Ozzie Newsome and the Ravens’ brass? Hear what Jake and Nolan think.

Sunday marked another example of an attendance problem at M&T Bank Stadium. What is causing the increased amount of empty chairs? Is there a solution to get more butts in seats?

Three of the Ravens’ next four games take place on the road, but the opponents are not forbidding. Can the Ravens turn things around, or will they continue their downward spiral? All of this and more on tonight’s episode.
